Resist with rub-ons

I decided to leap in & take part this month in the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013. 

His inspirational tag can be seen here.

So adapting his design to fit my own supplies, this is the end result.

I used 300gsm acrylic paper for my tag base & Bonjour rub ons by Kaisercraft.

I only have Distress Inks, so I used these to colour the background
(fired brick, broken china, peeled paint, mustard seed & spiced marmalade).

I overstamped with a few of Tim's Mini Muse stamps (CMS063), with Jet Black Archival Ink
(embrace imperfection, filmstrip & bingo card).

I used a domed glass embellishment from Eco Green Crafts (Glass Glintz) over some words cut
from my English Dictionary that I use in my craft projects (a charity shop purchase).

I added a brad over the top of the dome to give a similar look to Tim's faux enamelled tag
& some coloured fibre through the top.

Now to tidy up ...
